New Yorkers are being warned by health officials about a milk recall with potentially tainted raw milk.

Those who have consumed the contaminated raw milk and milk products from Udder Milk should visit their doctor immediately.

People who bought and drank raw milk from a company called Udder Milk may have been infected with a rare but potentially serious germ called Brucella abortus RB51. While Brucella can cause anyone to become sick, women may suffer miscarriage and other pregnancy complications making it critical for pregnant women who may have consumed the raw milk from Udder Milk to seek medical care immediately.

The CDC says those who have ingested any of the recalled Udder Milk products should check themselves daily for fever for up to a month and watch for other brucellosis symptoms for six months. These symptoms include muscle pain, lasting fatigue, arthritis, depression, and swelling of the testicles. Untreated Brucella RB51 infection can result in long-term health problems like arthritis; heart problems; enlargement of the spleen or liver; and, in rare cases, nervous system problems like meningitis.


Udder Milk is a co-op operating in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island where their products are delivered to your home.
